The Senckenberg Natural History Museum in Frankfurt is worth a visit for everyone and kids love it! Great place to go on the weekend with the family! Learn about ancient natural history without the feeling of being in a "typical" museum :)

There are several parts to the main collections, including rocks, fossils, stuffed birds & animals, as well as 2 temporary exhibitions, one on dinosaurs and one on live spiders. Although the museum itself is pretty rich in specimens, it lacks a bit around the facilities of a UNESCO world-heritage site, as it brags itself to be. First, only parts of... More

Enjoyed this particular museum in Frankfurt, lots of interesting exhibits on the local area and its wildlife and water ways. Museum shop is small but has good items, the cafe is also a lovely place to visit. It costs 7 euros for a ticket, money well spent

Big collections, nice presentations, spacious: even though crowded you can still find space to look at your own points of interests. A must see in Frankfurt! (Very good for childrens, but not...

Located a little bit out of the way, in the vicinity of the Frankfurt Messe, this is a great museum. It features countless exhibits with the regular stuffed animals section, insects and a huge hall dedicated to marine mammals and dinosaurs. While we visited, there was a temporary exhibition of live spiders (and scorpions), which was absolutely stunning. A combined... More

Senckenberg Museum has dinosaurs and mammels and insects and anything and everything to do with natural history. It's a lovely old building, with a little shop. When I visited there was a spider exhibit on with many cases of live spiders, and beautiful large photos of some of the more spectacular-looking spiders on the walls. I loved the 2 giant... More

Museum was really satisfying. You can spend a full day there depending on your interest in science, evolution etc. The only unpleasant thing was the inadequate English explanations.

Cool dinosaur exhibition and a lot of taxidermied animals. We went on a day that entry was free and they had lots of kids activities. Our kids enjoyed it but didn't rave.
